In the heart of South Africa's scenic Garden Route, you will find Thesen Islands - an award-winning marina development located in Knysna. The marina consists of 19 man-made islands linked by arched bridges, and surrounded by tidal waterways. The islands house 489 individual homes, as well as 56 apartment units in the Dry Mill apartments, situated on its own island within the development.
Thesen Islands provide its residents with a unique lifestyle, with something for everyone. There is no better way to unwind than the incredible range of facilities the estate delivers right on your doorstep.
Enjoy a stroll through the safe and peaceful surroundings by moonlight or under the brilliant South African sun.
Being a seaside resort, the main focus is on water activities, but there's also plenty to do for those who would rather remain on-land. Relax on the beach or in the park, restore your inner-balance with a meander through the maze, visit the orchard, or improve your putting. If you enjoy racquet games, we offer both squash and tennis facilities.
The house itself offers three en-suite bedrooms, and is finished in a modern style. The entertainment flow is magnificent: from the open plan kitchen and lounge area, to a large sundeck and jetty that looks out over the canal and a private beach. The canal and beach in front of the house is the perfect setting for all beach activities.
Features include excellent security, satellite television, and maid service on request.
This cozy beach house is lagoon estate living at its best: far from the crowds but a short walk away from the vibrant heart of Knysna's city centre. Walk to the restaurants and shops for delicious breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, and spoil yourself with Knysna’s fresh oysters while watching the boats on the lagoon, with the famous Knysna heads as the scenic backdrop.
Who needs a pool when the tidal waterways are at your feet? Swim through the estate, or bring your SUP or canoe to explore the estate by water.
